Susan Coolidge is the pen name of Sarah Woolsey. Born in Ohio, in 1835, to a wealthy family, she is most famous for "What Katy Did"."

From AudioFile:

Katy Carr grows from a heedless girl to a responsible teen in this classic story. Narrator Laurel Lefkow brings Katy's earnest ambitions to life with a pleasant voice. She succeeds in conveying the simple sweetness of this old-fashioned family story. While modern listeners may not understand Katy's protracted illness, they will identify with her desire to endure patiently and to be a help to her family. Voices for each of Katy's five siblings are distinct, and the adult voices of her father and Aunt Izzy are equally strong. A sensitive abridgment also contributes to this fine recording. Take a step back in time with this hopeful story of family life. C.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
